I own a small transportation company and most of the time my trucks are booked for different routes where drivers are selected according to the load and destinations. If i have to make changes then i have to look around papers and accordingly make a new booking on basis of available resources. Can someone recommend me a software which can make my life easier, any suggestions?
The company I drive for doesn't really have an automated system. You might check out Rand McNally or google "land transportation planning software" and see what you get.... "The Trucker" a by-weekly transportation newspaper has Ads for this kind of product.
Try Saviom Resource scheduling software (www.saviom.com). It has a visual booking chart where you can easily drag and drop and change different bookings against different resources (so in your case, drivers).

I have been using eResource Scheduler and i recommend it to most of the users here. That one thing i like about the software is the ease in making the booking you just have to drag and drop the booking in front of the resource and it will be booked. The software is not complicated that means you can devote the time you save in staff scheduling in doing other productive things. You can log on to their website for more details and get a feel of the software yourself as an obligation free trial.
